Bill was a good musician and a good person. I sang in the St. Mary's choir in the sixties, and singing under his direction was one of my happiest choir experiences. Please let me know when the memorial service is planned.

I was a student of Bills' on and off over a period of 18 years starting in the 60's. Bill was always their to help with a musical question. Bill is the reason I was able to become the full time Director of Music at St. Marys Norwalk from July, 2002 untill 2006 and the reason I am now at St. Marys' Stamford for the past 4 years and hopefully until I retire. I have called him a few times a year every year to say hello and see how things are. I called him this year when a student of his flew in from Italy to play violin at his fathers memorial and put him on the phone with Bill. My Mother and Father who are still alive both send their condolences and remember him fondly and for all of us it was a lifetime of being able to serve the Church with great music and enjoy every minute of it. My son Andrew is now an Alter Server and 23 years old, I don't know where all the time went but it was always good to know Bill was around when you called and I called him my entire life he will be remembered as a great Mentor, He is missed already John Joseph Masi Jr. 203-913-1458
